Town Merchandise


Merchandise including posters, T-shirts, mugs and cards were designed to promote a popular market town called Stony Stratford, which is the supposed origin of the phrase ‘cock & bull story’. In the 18th century, The Cock and The Bull were two of the main coaching inns in the town. The banter and rivalry between groups of travellers is said to have resulted in exaggerated and fanciful stories, which became known as 'cock & bull stories'. The poster has a modern, yet retro feel with the freehand/stencil effects and was printed as a set in yellow, magenta and cyan.
